Biology is the natural science that involves the study of life and living organisms, including their physical and chemical structure, function, development and evolution.
Sub-disciplines of biology include: biochemistry, molecular biololgy, cellular biology, physiology, ecology and evolutionary biology.
Biology careers can lead you on to study living organisms such as animals, plants, humans or even bacteria, to help develop biological knowledge and understanding of living processes for a number of different purposes, including treatment of disease and sustaining the natural environment.
A biology degree can help you to begin a career as a marine biologist, oncologist, crime scene investigator, microbiologist, nurse, physician assistant, veterinarian or dentist.
